Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming 16th Century Grade II listed cottage in the heart of this highly desirable village.

East Garston is less than a 10 minute drive from junction 14 of the M4 and yet is quiet and peaceful with no main road running through it. Good train services can be found at Hungerford, approx 6 miles and Newbury, approx 12 miles together with all the usual amenities.

Old Cottage has been updated and well maintained by the present owners and has good ceiling heights. In 2011 it was totally re-thatched, with the thatch still under guarantee for another 4 years, and also rewired with a NICEIC certificate valid until 2020.

You enter the property through a thoroughly charming low front door but once inside the accommodation is light and airy, combining charm, character and modern touches. There is travertine flooring through much of the ground floor, the sitting room is dual aspect, has exposed beams and an impressive inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove for those chilly winter evenings. The dining room is again dual aspect with exposed beams.

The kitchen has been refitted with modern shaker style units and granite worktops with integrated combi microwave, integrated dishwasher and a traditional oil-fired Rayburn which runs the central heating, cooking and hot water.

Two staircases give access to the first floor, one from the sitting room to three good sized bedrooms and a cloakroom, that could with some adjustment become a shower room, and the other from the kitchen to the bathroom. There is a high pressure water system for the separate bath and shower.

The property has a good sized and private cottage garden, a large single garage with light and power and off-road parking. There is also a workshop and a shed/greenhouse both with light and power.

A lovely cottage combining the best of old and new.
